Even a high and tight will grow out and be nearly touching your ears in two weeks.

Did you ever go to sea?

Yes, 2 deployments, one on the Enterprise, the other on the Truman.

Wouldn't you need a few haircuts during each deployment?

I completed 17 deployments, I needed haircuts during every deployment.

A Navy draftee got sent to a ship straight out of boot camp.
Mess cooking duties.
Then he got assigned to the hot engine room as he was a Fireman Apprentice.


He happened to mention he graduated from barber school before getting drafted and his ship life got way better as they assigned him to Ship's Service as the ship's barber.

On both deployments, we would hit port at least once every 3 to 4 weeks. I would get a bald fade each time. By the time we hit port again, it would have grown out to a 2 guard. The only place I couldn't get a haircut was when we ported in Turkey. So I would have brave the ships barbershop if my hair got to long. We had terrible barbers.
